WhakamĀrama Āpitihanga

E toru pea ngā take mō te whitiwhiti reo a tētahi kaikōrero:

  1. Ko tana kore mōhio ki te kupu, ki te reo rānei hei whakapuaki i ōna whakaaro. Hei tauira: "I raru tana motukā i a rātou i haere ai ki Te Tairāwhiti ko te carburettor tonu te mea i pakaru, the petrol wasn't getting through to the engine."
  2. Ko tana hiahia ki te whakaatu, ki te whakanui rānei i tana tuakiri. Hei tauira: "It is important that our tamariki and mokopuna get the best education possible."
  3. Ko tana hiahia kia mārama te hunga whakarongo ki ana kōrero, mēnā he tauhou rātou ki te reo. Hei tauira: "Kei waho nei ngā wharepaku. The toilets are just outside here."
